My First 4th Of July In Oahu Hawaii

img_6381I’m so excited about celebrating my first holiday here in Hawaii. At the same time it’s my first holiday without my oldest daughter. It’s normally 4 of us and today it’s only 3 of us. My 27 year old had decided to stay back in Connecticut so it’s going to be a little hard to not have her with us.

The family all agreed that we wanted to eat seafood today so earlier during the week I started looking around and asking co-workers about where I could buy seafood on the island at a reasonable price. Seafood is definitely our go to summer menu during the summer holidays.

I found a few places and compared prices before making a decision and finalizing the menu. I ended up buying the 3 packs of snow crabs clusters from Don Quijote and 15lbs of crawfish from Seafood City and a case of Corona’s beer and 3 red bags of potatoes from Safeway.


I didn’t miss a beat with my seasoning, everything came out so so good. We were in that house sucking heads and crab legs. Spicy juice was just dripping down our arms and we didn’t care. Once we were able to move from all that good eating we made our way down to the beach to enjoy the festivities and to watch all of the fireworks.

D’lish 4th Of July menu was fantastic, those ladies never disappoint me. So, I was very excited to check out their menu today. Music was provided by DJ Dougie and Stevie Steve throughout the day. Lots of fun competitions and American ninja warrior style games started around 2pm.

The fireworks started at 9pm and we managed to catch a lot of them from different directions on the property. Thanks Kapilina Beach Homes for a safe and fun evening.

So, how was your 4th of July?
